Nebraska Court Interpreter Certification

 

Nebraska Court Interpreter Orientation workshop schedule is currently not posted.

The workshop is an enjoyable and challenging opportunity to learn about court interpreting and network with professional interpreters and others who are interested in this career. Orientation is the first step toward certification as a court interpreter.

And here is the Language Access webpage, if you want more information:
https://supremecourt.nebraska.gov/programs-services/interpreters 

**Pursuant to Nebraska Supreme Court rule, court interpreters must have no past felony convictions or pending felony criminal charges. In addition, in the preceding 5 years had no misdemeanor convictions or pending charges manifesting a significant deficiency in honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, or reliability. Disposition of any felony charges less than 5 years in the past other than by acquittal or dismissal (e.g., pretrial diversion) shall be the basis for denial of certification. Disposition of misdemeanor charges manifesting a significant deficiency in honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, or reliability less than 5 years in the past other than by acquittal or dismissal (e.g., pretrial diversion) may also preclude work as a court interpreter in this state. If you have questions regarding your qualification to work as a Nebraska court interpreter, please contact Jennifer Verhein at jennifer.verhein@nebraska.gov

The Rules on Interpreters per the Nebraska Supreme Court have been amended. Please click on the following hyperlink to download the PowerPoint to view these amendments.   pptxAmendments_to_NSC_Interp_Rules_12-2018
